I want to start a few seconds video recording prompted by a gun blast. Plan is to attach a USB camera to a spotting scope and have my Mac start recording a few seconds of video the moment a shot is fired. The start and stop of the Video recording can be done with Automator ad/or Apple script. I am looking for an app or hardware solution to prompt the recording. It could be an application that starts a script once a sound exceeds a certain level. Perhaps even better a motion sensor that will sense the shock in the rifle stock. Thanks for your help. Rogier

I'm looking for a music video I saw on YouTube within the last six months. Two young Japanese female musicians sitting at a table singing. It's mainly in Japanese but there are few English words here and there. It's a poppy, dancy song. In the background some men in green or black bodysuits are dancing around. One of the women eats a worm or grub with a fork. Towards the end one of the women pulls out a sword and chops the men up, and finally the other woman shoots herself with a gun. Does that ring a bell for anyone?

A friend of mine, a NYC resident with no firearm permit from the NYPD, recently purchased a rifle at a gun show in PA (apparently the dealer didn't recognize his address as being within NYC and didn't ask him for a permit, as NY state residents can purchase rifles without one). He says he does plan on applying for the necessary permit, but in the meantime is storing the rifle in his home. How likely is he to get into any trouble? [more inside]
I'll be living and working in one of both. I want to buy a pepperbox revolver replica, because I always was fascinated by those , likely percussion based, and maybe take it to a shooting range once in a while. Do I need to fill out any kind of paperwork? What if I move from one state to another? What if I have the gun in my car as I cross state lines? Can I have the gun and ammunition with me in the car?
Does anyone know of an antique gun, specifically rifle, dealer in southeastern Mass.? I have googled and can find none in southeast ma. but I'm sure there must be a few out there. I've called several gun shops and none of them know of any people that are qualified appraisers. Any help would certainly be appreciated. Thanks.
Kinetic 3 is turning 15 this month and all his little heart wants is a BB gun, because he and his friends like to make war movies (or something). Every single inner instinct I have automatically says, "No. Not gonna happen, pal," because of all the obvious reasons (no guns in my house, what the hell do you need a gun for, someone's gonna lose an eye, etc.). My question is: is there any reason my kid should be allowed to get a BB gun? Am I missing something?

I have noticed that in most portable gun cases which are hard plastic on the outside with a foam core inside there seems to be pieces of shiny glass embedded in the foam. I have only noticed this in gun case foam not other types of foam for example, the foam inside couch cushions or bedding. Why would they put glass inside gun case foam?

I was raped by someone I thought was a friend. I finally reported him to the cops, but I live alone in a city where i walk everywhere. He knows all of this, along with my daily habits. I don't want to change my lifestyle, but I need safety, especially at my apartment (which is where he raped me). Pepper spray (which I already have), tasers, stun guns--I've seen cops use these things on men of his size & it makes no difference. I feel like I have no choice but to get a gun. Please help me think of another option. [more inside]

This question is for cinephiles: A filmmaker friend of mine is putting together a montage of film clips featuring shots or scenes where a gun is pointed directly at the screen. One example that immediately came to mind was the scene in GOODFELLAS where Lorraine Bracco is pointing a gun at Ray Liotta's face, and there are shots where she is pointing at gun at the screen. Does anyone know of other films featuring such shots? Thanks.
GunFilter: What, if any, are the less-obvious ramifications of getting both a concealed-carry permit (WA state), and an alien firearms license (which is required in this case to get the permit)? For example, I assume these licenses show up on police computers - might that change the way police interact with you under certain circumstances? Are there other aspects of life where these licenses, or the database entries created by them, might influence situations? [more inside]
Identify this song: Dub / TripHop feel. Possibly by DJ Shadow, more likely by someone else who sounds similar. Distinguishing feature: Snare hits come in groups of six, and after the sixth hit, there's the sound of a gun reloading. I don't think there were any vocals.
